More fun from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, who tell you to AVOID THE ROADS AT ALL COSTS. Heaven knows what went on there, apparently an accident or two every day it seems, and what accidents they are! Bad acting people fall asleep, speed and yes, take their eyes off the road for a second, and they wind up in real life footage of auto accidents, which yes, very hard to watch. The acting is pretty horrible, but Mrs Andrews I'm not sure if she is or not, but she's got the best message in the entire film. Too bad she apparently is stuck in the hospital for the rest of her life.

Subject: Highways of Death!
One of a series of traffic safety films produced in the 60s by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, it intersperses commentary by real patrolmen with grusome shots of actual fatal accidents. It was probably meant to be shown to drivers' ed classes.
